Mid-week Discipleship Groups for those who want to dig deeper into the Bible & following Jesus
Join a relaxed small group with a focus on exploring the Bible together and praying for each other. Plus we usually enjoy some snacks together too!
DGs are a supportive and encouraging environment to help teens in their walk with Jesus. They are also a platform for exploring ways for teens to use their gifts to serve the wider group of teens at POD.
If you’re still hungry for more after Pod each week, then DGs are the place for you!
Sundays 9:30—11:00 • Yrs 7-8
We believe teens have much to offer in church life and Shift aims to partner with parents in equipping & empowering them to share their potential!
The Shift program is an opportunity for the Yr7-8s of our church to be encouraged to make the 'shift' from being children in our church to active, serving young teens.
Shift is an option only three times per term - it is not a 'Kids Church Extension' - We want to challenge them to own the responsibility to make the most of their Sunday church involvement.
Shift is led by Simon Holmes & Di Abbott. Please get in touch if you have any questions or comments!
Three key components of Shift:
Exploring what the Bible has to say about church, and particularly church gatherings
Engaging in the church gathering by reflecting and taking notes
Encouraging them to serve in church life
Each Sunday before a Shift week, booklets and clipboards will be available at the back of the church for Yr7/8s to utilise to help them engage in the gathering and prepare to reflect together the following week.
